Homemade Jibe Goja

Friends are always a big support for us and I am blessed with such wonderful friends surrounding me. And truly they are my big support for any kind of help they are always connected with me. Most of them are very good cook and believe me it’s my dream to have something from their kitchens.  Among them one of my very good friends Pinki Sarkar shared one of her very good recipe of GOJA a famous sweet of Bengal. In my childhood days I used to eat JIBE GOJA every time when we visited any Mela or Fair. Few old shops in Kolkata are famous for this JIBE GOJA. Especially during durga puja time they make lots of JIBE GOJA.

In my home town there is a small sweet shop where JIBE GOJA is very famous because they make GOJA in a very nice shape like a stick. Whenever I visit my home town I never forget to buy GOJA from that shop. I never prepared this at home but really wanted to make something different like that and made it with full confidence, because the taste took me to my childhood days.
